Legion

Similarities – Good Twists & Superheroes

Legion is a challenging sci-fi series that exists somewhere within the weird space of the X-Men universe. It’s also one of the more unusual and visually stunning shows you’re likely to see in quite some time.

The story revolves around a super mutant named David Haller. This troubled young man spends his time institutionalized after being diagnosed as schizophrenic.

What follows is an unforgettable journey as David tries to make sense of what’s happening and why he’s there. The show has three seasons and ends conclusively too, making for a solid watch that’s very much recommended.

Heroes Season 1

Heroes (Season 1)

Similarities – Characters & Premise

It’s important to make the distinction here that only season 1 bears much semblance to Moving. While the heroes (no pun intended) in this series don’t wear capes and show off their powers, it is one of the better examples of character writing and creating believable heroes in the modern day world.

Serving as a superhero origin story, the characters are well written, given some decent screen time, and the extended run-time is enough to flesh everyone out and build up to a climactic showdown at the end.

The Umbrella Academy

Similarities – Quirky Characters & Story

The Umbrella Academy is really the full package. While it may not have the same level of gore and explicit violence as other hero entries on this list, it does have a great ensemble of characters and some excellent action. The Umbrella Academy actually takes the time to flesh out every character and gives them a compelling arc.

The action sequences are well shot and the simple story surrounding this misfit group of child-heroes teaming up to save the world is as engrossing as it is watchable.

Misfits

Similarities – Banter, Characters & Tone

When it comes to a tight-knit group of teenagers forming an unlikely group, British series Misfits fits the bill. It’s a smartly written series that balances a combination of laugh out loud moments with much more profound bouts of drama.

The result is something that’s cleverly written and features a pretty diverse group of characters you can’t help but get behind.


Sense8

Similarities: Characters & Story

Shot on-location across the globe, Sense8 is an incredibly good looking show and it merges that with a thought provoking and action-packed story.

The narrative centers around a group of people across the globe who suddenly and inexplicably are mentally linked together. These characters are then thrust head-first into danger, forced to find a way to survive as they’re hunted by those who see them as a threat to the world’s order.

There are a lot of twists and turns along the way, and it was such a fan favourite in its time that the abrupt ending to season 2 forced Netflix’s hand to commission a conclusive feature film to finish the story.

The Boys

Similarities – Good Characters & Violence

Amazon’s Original Series The Boys bucks the trend of tired Marvel and DC spin-offs to deliver one of the most refreshing superhero takes on TV.

Armed with a compelling narrative, an interesting, satirical look at superhero culture and a smattering of blood and gore along the way, this one is a bloody good time.


Legacies

Similarities – Tone, Vibe & Ideas

Legacies is a supernatural thriller, chock full of action and drama. The series continues the groundwork developed in The Vampire Diaries and The Originals, although to be fair you can jump into this without having seen of them.

The story focuses on the next generation of supernatural beings at The Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted. In particular, Klaus Mikaelson’s daughter, 17-year-old Hope Mikaelson. There’s also Alaric Saltzman’s twins, Lizzie and Josie Saltzman, along with other young adults who come of age in the most unconventional way possible.

As the series progresses, there’s plenty of stand-out moments that should whet the appetite for anyone who has been enjoying Moving.


I Am Not Okay With This

Similarities – Tone & Ideas

Netflix’s latest teen drama I Am Not Okay With This is another unfortunate cancellation casualty. However, it’s undeniably similar to Stranger Things for its depiction of teen drama and supernatural elements.

The story follows Sydney, a teenage girl with a lot of problems. Juggling her Father’s death, her estranged relationship with her Mother and her best friend finding love and drifting away, Sydney is overcome with emotions.

This spills over in the form of inexplicable supernatural powers that sporadically appear during stressful moments. What follows is a fast-paced journey that sees Syd grapple with the usual high school woes you’d expect while running a superhero origin story in the shadows.
